The Salkantay Trek, which is also known as the “alternative Inca Trail”, is one of the most popular hikes in Cusco. Its popularity has grown especially now that the traditional Inca Trail books rather quickly.
This hike is a magnificent wilderness alternative for those who wish to escape the more congested trekking routes. This route crosses the Andes Mountains and then descends down to the high jungle. This amazing journey will take you through an amazing progression of ecological zones. Experience the views of sparsely vegetated alpine meadows revealing two spectacular glaciated peaks, and then head down through a subtropical forest.
The visit to Machu Picchu on day five is more exhilarating having trekked across rugged terrain to arrive at this famous citadel of the Incas. The student will attend our group course in Cusco during the first week and will hike the trek during the second week. Additional weeks of studying Spanish can also be booked upon request. Accommodation during the week in Cusco is not included, however the package does include accommodation, meals, camping equipment, transportation and a professional guide during the trek. No fixed departure days, no required minimum.
Please be advised that there are no Spanish classes organized while on the trek and only a guide will be present to accompany the students. If you want to study Spanish and also take advantage of this unique opportunity to trek through the glorious Andes Mountains with your teacher, sign up for the fantastic program: Spanish and Trekking.
